Storm was fearsome, but expected

Storm was fearsome, but expected

Floridan Staff Writer

A storm marked by high
winds blew through Jack-
son County in the wee
hours of Tuesday morning,
causing scattered damage,
power outages, downed
trees, and blocked or
flooded roads. The storm
hit shortly after midnight.
The severity of the over-
night storm surprised
Jackson County Emer-
gency Management Direc-
tor Rodney Andreasen to
some degree, but he knew
it was coming.
"We didn't think it was
going to be as extensive
as this," he said Tuesday
afternoon. "But we started
sending warnings out on it
last Friday. We know Feb-
ruary, March and April are
the worst times for this
kind of weather. This was
just a very vigorous cold
front coming into contact
with warm, moist air. It can

be fearsome."
Even though trees came
down, roads were blocked,
houses were damaged
and power outages oc-
curred around the county,
Andreasen said' it does
not appear that Jackson
County had any tornadoes
- just strong, straight-
line winds. He didn't know
whether winds reached 65
to 70 miles per hour, as had
been predicted.
, Heavy overnight winds
sent trees tumbling into
may Jackson County roads
overnight, leaving a chal-
lenge for late night and
early morning travelers.
For instance, Jackson
County Floridan newspa-
per carriers reported that

Several houses damaged by trees

Floridan Staff Writer

Two long-standing, structures, both
beloved by multiple generations, were
damaged in a storm which raced through
Jackson County just after midnight Tues-
day morning.
About 12:45 a.m. Tuesday, a loud noise
startled Greg Tidwell out of a deep sleep.
His wife, Sherry, was already awake. She
looked at her husband and said, "I think
a tree just came through the roof."
The two leapt out of bed and walked
down the short hallway to the next room
of their home on Hummingbird Lane
near Bascom. When they looked up, they
saw a tree trunk and branches peeking
through broken rafters that jutted out
from a gaping hole in the ceiling. They
checked the rest of the house, and saw
more of the same in three other rooms.
The tree had snapped off about mid-way
down its trunk, and fallen through the

roof in two bedrooms, the living room
and the dining area. Only the kitchen and
their bedroom were spared.
They and other familymembers worked
through the night clearing the inside of
their home, safeguarding some valuable
belongings, and figuring out what to do
After daybreak, Tidwell walked around
the outside of the home his grandfather
built when his father was just a little boy.
Not given to sentiment, Tidwell still felt
a lump in his throat when he looked
around at the destruction. He finds it
hard to accept that he might not be able
to fix all that's broken, but he's planning
to try.
His mother, Luverne Tidwell, remem-
bers how Greg's father, Hubert Tidwell,
used to talk about the time the house was
"He was about seven years old, "Lu-
verne Tidwell said of her husband, now
deceased. "He used to tell me how he

their home Tuesday.
remembered bringing the timber to his
daddy (also named Hubert). It was spe-
cial thing to him, spending that time with
his father."
It took the elder Tidwell five years to

Road crews


Roads across the county
blocked by trees, debris
Floridan Staff Writer

Jackson County, Road and Bridge Su-
perintendent Al Green and his crew were
expecting to work until nearly dark Tues-
day, trying to open all the roads that were
blocked by trees following the storm that
rushed through the county shortly after
midnight Monday evening.
By 2 a.m. Tuesday, a handful of workers
were already on the job. Green found a
silver lining in the crisis; he was grateful
that flooding wasn't part of the problem.
The wind was enough, he said.
This was the-worst case of blocked
roads he has seen in his six years as su-
perintendent, he said. The county listed
94 roads with trees down blocking traffic
lanes at some point, some with multiple
trees in various locations. That was the
total by 3 p.m. Tuesday, and others were
expected to be discovered as little-trav-
eled roads get traffic. Green was pushing
his crew to clear all the known block-
ages by Tuesday before dark. Some crew
members had been working overtime
since early Tuesday morning.
Green and a backhoe operator report-
ed for duty around midnight Monday,
and by 2 a.m. Tuesday, another half-
dozen were working. Only people with
scheduled time off were exempt from
road-clearing duty on Tuesday, he said.
"We started.out with one backhoe op-
erator, and me, to go clear a tree off

School classes, buses disrupted by weather

Floridan Staff Writer

Schools across Jackson County
were disrupted Tuesday as the
result of severe weather that
knocked out power and delayed
Buses in Graceville were de-

played for two hours because the
electricity was out at the high
school, and a power line was
blocking an entrance at the el-
ementary school, said Jackson
County School District Transpor-
tation Manager John Hamilton.
Hamilton said bus drivers
across the district encountered

trees and debris on the roads.
Many had to turn around and
find alternative ways to pick up
students. Hamilton said there
were about five buses that were
running behind, but in general
the driver's did "an outstanding
job negotiating the debris."
Graceville High School started

two hours later than usual be-
cause the power was out until
about 7:30 a.m. The power com-
pany, originally estimated the
electricity wouldn't be restored
until noon, but it happened fast-
er than expected, said Gradev-
ille High School Principal Chris

Franklin said about two-
thirds, of students were absent
at Graceville Tuesday. "We're
going to have to excuse a lot of
students today," Franklin said,
adding that many students and
staff didn't have power at their

Puppy Patrol comes

to Malone School

Special to the Floridan

Malone School Principal
Linda Hall invited Jackson
County Sheriff's Office rep-
resentatives Deputy Sheriff
Jimmy Hamilton, Deputy
Sheriff Adam Walker and
Deputy Sheriff Sean Hill
and his partner Homer,
a black Lab, who are part
of the "Puppy Patrol" to
visit all pre-K through 5th-
grade students at Malone
The deputies met with
14 classes while they were
at Malone. The objective of
the program is to deliver a
strong anti-drug and anti-
violence message in an

entertaining and educa-
tional way, and to portray
the officer as a role model
and someone the kids can
consider a friend.
Besides the children get-
ting to personally meet the
officer and his canine, ma-
terials are given to the chil-
dren during the presenta-
tion which include pencils,
stickers and certificates.
The Puppy Patrol pro-
gram is sponsored by
Dogs Against Drugs/Dogs
Against Crime, which has
been a national organiza-
tion since 1993. DAD/DAC
receives funds through
fundraising efforts and

Former Marianna resident Floyd
D. "Bud" Jordan Jr. has been select-
ed as a 2011 Florida State University
College of Business Hall of Fame re-
cipient. Jordan is one of three indi-
viduals to officially be inducted into
a prestigious group of 23 business'
leaders on Thursday, Mar. 31 at the
9th Annual Hall of Fame Dinner &
Begun in 2003, the FSU College
of Business Hall of Fame honors
and celebrates individuals who em-
body the qualities that make the
College of Business at Florida State
an extraordinary place to learn and
grow. Hall of Fame inductees have
excelled in their careers and have
made significant contributions to
the mission of the college.
Jordan, senior vice president of in-
vestments for Merrill Lynch Global
Wealth Management, has a reputa-
tion for vision and a command of
the investment markets that has
earned him the respect of clients,
colleagues and competitors.
After graduating in 1957 from

Florida State University with a'
bachelor's degree in accounting,
Jordan began his ca-
reer as an auditor for
the U.S. Army Audit
Agency. His career
continued to flourish
as he worked in po-
sitions for the Eason
JordanJr. Company, American
Chemco and EI. Du-
pont, until he became the senior
vice president for E.E Hutton. It
was in this capacity that Jordan was
identified as one ofWall Street's "top
brokers" in an article that appeared
in Securities Week, and his Stuart of-
fice was identified as one of the top-
producing offices.
Jordan served as senior vice presi-
dent of investments for multiple
investment firms including Pruden-
tial Securities, Shearson and, most
recently, Legg Mason. He was senior
vice president of Wealth Manage-
ment for Smith Barney Inc. before
he and his financial team, The Jor-
dan-McGovern Group, were recruit-
ed by Merrill Lynch Global Wealth
Management in 2009. At the time,

The Jordan-McGovern Group man-
aged $500 million in client assets.
Jordan has been a licensed finan-
cial advisor for more than 41 years
and has numerous professional af-
During his career, he was select-
ed for 11 consecutive years as one
of the top 30 brokers of E.E Hut-
ton Group Inc. In 2008, Jordan was
named by Barron's as one of the top
one percent of financial advisors in
the industry.
Jordan's passion for Florida State
began in his college days when he
was a clown and juggler in the FSU
Circus. Today, he serves on the in-
vestment committee of the Florida
State University Foundation and
supports both the circus and athlet-
ics. Jordan established the Floyd D.
"Bud" Jordan Endowment Fund in
the College of Business and, most
recently, contributed to the Ft.
Pierce Regional Medical Campus.

Our Opinion

A potentially

costly mistake
S ome homeowners in Jackson County got a nasty
shock recently. Their mortgage holders wrote
them, requiring them to obtain flood insurance
- even though they didn't live in a flood plain.
The letters were the result of some erroneous maps
issued by the state, and approved by the county and
municipalities. The maps had been prepared by a pri-
vate contractor for the state.
There are several lessons here about what can pos-
sibly happen when government services are contracted
out; about what can happen when multiple levels of
government get involved in a decision; and about what
can happen when siall, cash-strapped municipalities
are required to make decisions they may not have the
expertise to weigh in on.
But what we want to focus on now is what can hap-
pen when conscientious individuals go above and
beyond to resolve a problem. Rick Pettis deserves much
credit for tracking down copies of the map inot an easy
task), figuring out what was wrong and alerting the
proper agencies that the maps needed to be corrected,,
Credit also goes to the affected homeowners who
spotted something was wrong, and to the municipali-
ties for responding and working to find a solution.
Hopefully, the situation will be resolved soon and the
homeowners will either not have to buy the insurance,
or at least be credited or reimbursed if they do.
More importantly, we hope someone is looking at
what went wrong this time, to ensure it doesn't happen

We need 'grand bargains'


One last time: The United
States will not solve its
monumental problems
which threaten our future as a
great nation without a series of
grand bargains between Republi-
cans and Democrats.
We need grand bargains to tame
the burgeoning federal debt, which
threatens the next generation's
ability to invest and grow big
bargains to reduce spending (es-
pecially entitlements) and reform
We need bargains on energy
policy to reduce our costly depen-
- dency on Middle East imports; on
immigration to ensure that we can
attract and keep skilled labor; on
education to prepare our own kids
for 21st-century competition; and
on strategies to invest in infrastruc-
ture. -
We probably will need a grand
bargain to rewrite President Barack
Obama's health care law, which the
Supreme Court may strike down,
but which, if upheld, will impose
enormous costs on the country.
We'll get the bargains only if
Republicans and Democrats work
together, because neither party is
ever likely to so dominate the gov-
ernment that it can push through
its entire agenda.
Democrats had that power after
the 2008 election including 60
votes in the Senate and control of
the House and White House and
promptly lost it through overreach-
ing liberalism. Voters don't want
overreaching conservatism, either.
This is a "one last time" call for
bargains because, after 48 years
in journalism and nearly 20 years
writing this column, I am semi-
retiring and leaving it to others to
bang the gong for centrist problem-
I'll chime in from time to time,
but now it's up to the likes of David
Brooks of the NewYork Tiftes, Da-
vid Ignatius of the Washington Post,
Fareed Zakaria of CNN and Bill
Galston of the Brookings Institution

Governor should
rethink privatization

Dear editor,

Gov. Rick Scott was at the Special
Olympic Torch run Thursday last
week in Tallahassee. The goal of
Special Olympics is to help people
with developmental disabilities
participate as productive and re-
spected members of society.
Gov. Scott has shown this com-
munity no respect. He looked
victorious in his photo ops, then
the same day said that services to
the special needs community will
be cut immediately. What a slap in
the face.
Gov. Scott also intends to priva-
tize state facilities that many de-
velopmentally disabled have called
home for years. My brother is at
Sunland in Marianna. He has lived
in group homes, in the community-
(supported independent living) and
at a privatized facility before mak-
ing Sunland his home. Under state
care he is truly happy and calm for
the first time in his 57 years. This is
because the state employees work-
ing at Sunland view the residents as
family, not as a per diem amount.

and The New Republic to carry the
And there are many in U.S. poli-
tics who understand the need for
bipartisan action to solve America's
problems as witness the "gang of
six" senators working to defuse the
federal debt bomb before it brings
down the U.S. economy.
If archconservative Sen. Tom
Coburn, R-Okla., and ultraliberal
Sen. Dick Durbin, D-Ill., can agree
to support the recommendations of
Obama's debt commission, there's
Shop for the nation.
If House Republican leaders can
team up with moderate Democrats
to keep the government running
and refuse to yield to tea-party
ideologues and the demagogic
presidential wannabes and talk-
radio blowhards who urge them on
there's hope.
If Republicans and Democrats
can agree, as they did in the lame-
duck session of the last Congress, to
extend President George W Bush's
tax cuts for two years and also
extend unemployment benefits and
reduce payroll taxes, there's hope.
To be sure, that agreement in-
volved dispensing largesse and in-
creasing deficits. Defusing the debt
bomb is going to require enormous
political courage which is why
Republicans and Democrats have
to do it together.
Polls show that while the voters
want deficits cut, they think it can
be done simply by slashing foreign
aid and raising taxes on the rich,
not reducing Social Security, Medi-
care and middle-class tax breaks.
And so-called leaders Senate
Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev.,
and Democratic ConferenceVice
Chairman Charles Schumer, D-
N.Y., come to mind seem bent on
making the task harder by claiming
that Social Security benefits needn't
be touched.
Where Obama fits in this picture
is anything but clear. He appointed
the Simpson-Bowles commission,
but he has yet to expend one erg of
energy to help get it implemented.
In fact, he has stipulated that

retirement benefits shouldn't be
"slashed" even though the com-
mission actually proposed gradu-
ally extending the retirement age to
69 in 2075.
The commission also proposed
lifting the level of income subject
to payroll taxes above its current
$106,000 level.
It's a version of an idea floated by
one of my favorite idea-activists,
Rick Swartz, applying the principles
of tax reform to Social Security by
"broadening the base and lowering
the rates," i.e., taxing all income
but cutting tax rates to encourage
Entitlement and tax reform are
both going to encounter fierce re-
sistance from entrenched interests,
starting with AARP and extending
Sto Grover Norquist's Americans
for Tax Reform, which is currently
attacking Coburn, of all people,
for proposing to reduce tax breaks
on business. If General Electric
can make enormous profits and
pay no taxes whatsoever as The
New York Times demonstrated last
weekend there is obviously a cry-
ing need for tax reform.
There also needs to be at least a
reduction in de-facto subsidies to
industries like housing and health
care also ethanol and oil that
distort investment decisions.
Special interests will fight to
defend them. But tax reform has
happened before in 1986. The
interests fought it, but it had Presi-
dent Ronald Reagan behind it, plus
Senate Republicans plus House
It didn't take a crisis to enact tax
reform in 1986, but usually it does
take one to compel difficult action.
The imminent expiration of the
federal debt ceiling could be a driv-
ing force for action on the debt.
Of the other bipartisan grand
bargains that ought to be on the
agenda, the one most possible
this year would be on education
reform, but at least there ought to
be constructive debate on energy,
immigration, health reform and
infrastructure investment.

Letters to the Editor

Scott needs to practice
what he preaches

Dear editor,

Gov. Rick Scott participated in
the Special Olympics Torch Run
March 30 by carrying the torch.
I was offended and in a state of
disbelief that he chose to celebrate
this amazing event, knowing all the
while that he was planning to slash
the budget for people with dis-
abilities so drastically that services
would be adversely affected and
inadequate for this population.
Could his true interest have
been that this event would pres-
ent a photo opportunity for him?
Families who have loved ones with
disabilities are voting, taxpay-
ing citizens of Florida and would
expect Florida to be a leader and
pace-setter in caring for their
disabled citizens. Shame on us all if
we don't.
My son resides at Sunland. We
want him to continue to live,
work, play and have friends in a
small, community-type setting. At
Sunland he is happy and produc-
tive. We do not need the budget cut.
They are not living life in the lap of
luxury now. However, at Sunland,
they do have a comfortable life in

a setting that is safe, loving and
We feel that, as citizens of the
state of Florida, these individuals
deserve at least that much. In fact,
they deserve the best that we can
give them. Every day is a challenge
for them.
My son goes to bed with autism,
he gets up with autism, and it will
never change for him. Another
thing that will never change is the
fact that he is loved and has a fam-
ily that intends to stay involved in
his care. We demand that Gov. Scott
do the right thing and stop attack-
ing families like ours.
I would like to know whether
or not our governor has ever set
foot at Sunland. He is a father and
should ask himself how he would
want his daughters treated if they
were disabled. He would never
choose to privatize, I'm sure. Priva-
tization simply will not work in this
situation. I can think of many cons,
compared to the pros. This cannot
be covered adequately with a few
Once again, we plead with Gov.
Scott to reconsider the budget cuts
and privatization issue and do the
right thing.




Storms fell trees, crush homes in South, killing 8

JACKSON, Ga. -An enormous
tree limb that crashed through a
Georgia family's bedroom killed
a father and the young son he

does, hail and spectacular light-

as she looked on.

in the Colquitt County Prison,
was killed Tuesday morning dur-

Elsewhere, emergency officials
were thankful the storm didn't
do greater damage.
Strong winds ripped off part of

Boeing didn't expect

737 cracks so soon

The Associated Press

PHOENIX Boeing was
surprised when a section
of a Southwest jetliner's
fuselage ripped open in
flight because the plane
wasn't old enough to be
worrisome, a company of-
ficial said Tuesday, as the
airline cleared most of its
older 737 planes to return.
to the skies.
Southwest said it had
inspected nearly all of the
jets it grounded after the
accident on Friday. Five
were found with the same
kinds of cracks suspected
of causing the 5-foot-
long hole to open as the
jet cruised around 34,000
feet. The planes are being
repaired, the airline said.
Boeing engineers did not
expect to see the cracks
because they thought they
had designed the joints
that hold the 737-300s'
aluminum skin in place to
be more robust.
They believed the planes
would not need inspec-
tions for at least 60,000
pressurization cycles, the
number of times that a
plane takes off and lands.
The company hadn't even
issued inspection specifi-
cations because none of
the planes involved were
anywhere near that old.
The Southwest jet was
15 years old and logged
39,000 cycles.
"I would say that it's re-
grettable that we had to
accelerate our plans to
recommend inspections
based on an event of this
nature," Boeing chief 737
engineer Paul Richter said.
He said the company has
given repair instructions
to Southwest for three

Obama: Budget deal close, shutdown disruptive

The Associated Press.

Barack Obama, showing grow-
ing impatience, said Tuesday it
would be "inexcusable" for law-
makers to fail to fund the gov-
ernment through the end of the
year and cause a shutdown.
' "We are closer than we have
ever been to an agreement. There
is no reason why we should not
get an agreement," Obama said
following a White House meet-
ing with congressional leaders.
Appearing before reporters at
the White House, Obama said
that House Speaker John Boeh-
ner and Senate Majority Leader
Harry Reid were to meet on Cap-
itol Hill later to continue nego-
tiations. If that meeting does not
produce an agreement, Obama
said he would summon the pair
back to the White House today.
"Myself, Joe Biden, my team
we are prepared to meet for
as long as possible to get this re-
solved," Obama said.
Boehner, in a televised appear-
ance right after Obama, said
Republicans also want to avoid
a government shutdown but
also want to achieve the largest
spending cuts that are possible.
"We believe cutting spending
will help us create jobs in Amer-
ica," he said.
Earlier Tuesday after meet-
ing with Obama, Boehner had
said there was no deal with the
White House. And he warned
'that House Republicans "will not
be put in a box" of accepting op-
tions they refuse to endorse.

Congress votes to repeal small part of Obama's health law

The AssociatedPress

sent the White House its first
rollback of last year's health care
law Tuesday,.a bipartisan repeal
.of a burdensome tax reporting
requirement that's widely un-
:,popular with businesses. Even
President Barack Obama is eager
to see it gone.
The Senate voted 87 to 12 to
repeal the filing requirement,
which would have forced mil-
lions of businesses to file tax
forms for every vendor selling
them more than $600 in goods'
Each year, starting in 2012. The
filing requirement is unrelated
to health care. However, it would
have been used to pay for part of
the new health law.
Republicans hope it is the first
of many such bills, resulting in
the entire health care law being
scrapped. Democrats say the bill
is part of an inevitable tinkering
'that will be needed to improve
the health measure.
"I just saw this as something
that never should have been in
the health care law," said Sen.

Mike Johanns, R-Neb., who
sponsored the repeal bill in the
White House spokesman Jay
Carney said, "We are pleased
Congress has acted to correct a
flaw that placed an unnecessary
bookkeeping burden on small
He added, "The administration
remains eager to work with any-
one with ideas about howwe can
make health care better or more
affordable for all Americans."
The filing requirement was
projected to raise nearly $25
billion over the next decade by
ensuring that vendors pay their
taxes. Under the bill, the money
will be made up by changing an-
other part of the health care law,
requiring more families to repay
tax credits designed to help them
cover insurance premiums, if
their incomes increase beyond
certain levels.
Republicans said the filing
provision is an example of what
happens when lawmakers hast-
ily patch together a massive bill
like the health care overhaul,
then vote to pass it without

.knowing everything that's in it.
Lawmakers from both parties
say the filing requirement could
create a paperwork nightmare
for businesses and the Internal
Revenue Service.
"This is a big win for small
businesses," said Senate Repub-
lican Leader Mitch McConnell of
Kentucky. "Importantly, it's also
the first of what I hope are many
successful repeal votes related to
the disastrous health spending
bill Democrats passed last year.
The more Americans learn about
this bill, the less they like it."
Businesses already must file
Form 1099s with the IRS when
they purchase more than $600 in
services from a vendor in a year.

The new provision would have
extended the requirement to the
purchase of goods, starting in
The requirement would hit
about 38 million businesses,
charities and tax-exempt orga-
nizations, many of them small,
businesses already swamped by
government paperwork, accord-
ing to a report by the National
Taxpayer Advocate, an indepen-
dent watchdog within the IRS.
Democrats passed the health
care law last year with no Repub-
lican support, when they had
majorities in both the House and
Senate. Republicans took con-
trol of the House in January, fol-
lowing congressional elections
in November.
"The 1099 health care mandate
is an albatross around the necks
of American small businesses,
forcing them to bear the brunt
of the Obama Administration's
big-spending, tax-hiking, debt-
increasing agenda," said Sen.
Orrin Hatch of Utah, the rank-
ing Republican on the Senate
Finance Committee.
Obama acknowledged the re-

quirement would "place an un-
necessary bookkeeping burden
on small businesses," according
to a statement released by the
president's budget office. The
House voted 314-112 in early
March to repeal the filing re-
Starting in 2014, the new health
care law will provide tax credits
to low- and middle-income fam-
ilies to help pay health insurance
premiums, if they don't get insur-
ance through their employers.
The credits will be paid directly
to insurance companies through-
out the year. The amount will be
based on family size, premium
costs and income, as reported
on previously filed tax returns.
Under the law, if a family's in-
come increases, and the fam-
ily members no longer qualify
for the tax credits, or qualify for
a smaller amount, they would
have to repay a portion of those
tax credits when they file their
federal tax returns. The bill
passed Tuesday would increase
the amount people would have
to repay, generating a projected
$25 billion over the next decade.

New AP poll reveals baby boomers' worries about retirement

The 77 million-strong
generation born between
1946 and 1964 are getting
nervous about retirement.
Only 11 percent say they
are strongly convinced
they will be able to live in
comfort. A total of 55 per-
cent said they were either
somewhat or very certain
they could retire with fi-
nancial security. But an-
other 44 percent express
little or no faith they'll

their careers end.

comes as politicians face
growing pressure to curb
record federal deficits, and
budget hawks of both par-
ties have expressed a will-
ingness to scale back Social

County sees scattered power outages after storm

From staff reports

In Graceville and other areas
served by West Florida Electric
Cooperative, 1,500 power cus-
tomers were still without elec-
tricity as of 2 p.m. Tuesday. The
company reported that about
5,000 customers in its four-coun-
ty coverage area were without
power at the peak of the storm,
but that roughly half had been
restored shortly after the start of
the business day Tuesday.
Another 1,000 were back in

service by 2 p.m. Most of those
still without power by mid-after-
noon were in Jackson and Cal-
houn counties.
The company advised that ad-
ditional crews from neighboring
co-ops were brought in to help
with the restoration, and that
crews would continue working
into the night Tuesday if neces-
sary to get power back on.
"Due to the extensive and
scattered nature of the damage
caused by the storm, restoration
efforts are taking considerable

resources," the company stated
in a press release. "We encourage
those still experiencing outages
to take the necessary steps to en-
sure their health and well-being
until power can be restored."
In Sneads, which the company
also serves, some customers
were out of power for about 20
minutes during the peak of the
storm. Service there was restored
in quick order.
In an earlier release, the com-
pany reported that damage to the
system was substantial and that

line crews were being hampered
by debris in their effort to restore
power. Numerous broken light
poles were reported, and many
trees were across lines. Compa-
ny officials asked that customers
be patient while the restoration
of power was completed.
Florida Public Utilities repre-
sentative said there were several
scattered outages with roughly
3,400 customers out of power
at the peak of the storm in its
service area of Marianna, Cot-
tondale, Greenwood, Alford,

Malone, Bascom and some com-
munities in Calhoun and Liberty
counties. There were 76 separate
outage events reported, with
multiple customers affected in
the 76 incidents.
By 4 p.m., all but 100 custom-
ers'in 23 of the areas affected
had their power restored. Early
on, telephone service problems
were making restoration difficult
in some cases, because commu-
nications were frequently dis-
rupted, according to company
representative Steve Toole.

in the storm. She's grateful that,
if it had to happen, it happened
when it did.

He heard a crashMondaynight,
and wondered what it was. Soon
after, firefighters came knocking

on his door trying to find out who
owned the building on the cor-
ner. It was the office, and a huge
oak tree had fallen in on it. The
tree is an estimated six to eight
feet in diameter and is probably
100 years old, Miller said. He had
other kids in the neighborhood
used to play around it in their
childhood, he said.
Two rooms were damaged, and
two were largely untouched. One
big limb went through a waiting
room of the office.

His grandfather, Dr. Redden
Lee Miller, built the clinic in
1950 for himself and his son,
Jack, who was a dentist and Lee's
father. The elder Miller conduct-
ed his practice in one end of the
building, and Jack took the other
for his dental office.
Miller said it will probably
take a lot to repair the damage
it suffered, but he's grateful that
almost none of his father's old
equipment was damaged. The.
old dental chairs, his collection
of implements and most other
items were largely unscathed.

One.old dental cabinet had mi-

hind it splintered and knocked it
over, he said, and some old den-

the cabinet also broke. The most
important things, however, were

Miller said. "I'm glad I've still got

at the age of 80 or 81, and I think
that's probably the last time he
ever went in there. But he loved
his old things, and it's fortunate
that they didn't get destroyed.
That means a lot."

Back in the office, staff
members were working just

downed trees on roads.
They were also helping try

go to work on a problem
until they're sure power has
been cut for safety reasons.
With multiple calls going
to both entities throughout
the day, that proved to be a.

as it sometimes does so
that it can recoup potential

From the beginning, we have taken responsibility for the cleanup. Our commitment

to the Gulf remains unchanged, as does our responsibility to keep you informed.

No oil has flowed into the Gulf since July 15th. As our efforts continue, nearly 100%
of the waters are open and the beaches are clean and open. To ensure its safety,
Gulf seafood has been more rigorously tested by independent researchers and
experts than any other seafood in the world. To date, BP has spent more than
$13 billion in clean-up costs.

An additional $282 million has been spent on environmental issues, including wildlife

$500 million to the Gulf of Mexico Research Institute to fund scientific studies on the
potential impact of the spill.

.' ". 'he Economy
$5 billion in claims have already been paid. We've committed $20 billion to an
independent fund to pay for environmental restoration and all legitimate claims,
including lost incomes. More than $200 million in grants have been made to the
Gulf Coast States to promote tourism and seafood.

Stakes are high in hearing

for all sides in NFL lockout

The Associated Press
A group of NFL players, includ-
ing Tom Brady, Peyton Manning
and Drew Brees, are asking a fed-
eral judge in Minneapolis to issue a
preliminary injunction that would
force team owners to lift the lock-
out that began nearly four weeks
ago. A glance at the details:
Q: What's at stake?
A: A lot. It's the first round of a
legal fight that could be long, dif-
ficult and damaging to both sides.
Whichever side wins the first argu-
ment will instantly have their bar-
gaining power enhanced should
negotiations resume.
"Preliminary injunctions are
a delicate question because fre-
quently, by granting the prelimi-
nary injunction, you significantly
affect what the ultimate outcome
will be," said David Allen Larson,
professor of labor and employ-
ment lw at Hamline University
School of Law in St. Paul, Minn.
"You change the dynamic some-
times in such a dramatic way."
Q: What is an injunction?
A: It is a court order compelling
a person or group to stop doing
something. In this case, the play-
ers are asking the judge to order
the owners to stop the lockout im-
posed after discussions on a new
collective bargaining agreement
broke off.
Exactly what happens if the
players are successful is unclear,
though such an order would al-
most surely be appealed.
Owners would in theory have
to draw up new rules, possibly
leaning on guidelines from 2010's
salary capless season: And if the
owners work together to issue new
rules, the players could in theory
level fresh antitrust claims.

Q: Who will be making the rul-
A: U.S.'District Judge Susan Rich-
ard Nelson, who was appointed
about four months ago. Judge Da-
vid Doty has presided over most of
the courtroom dealings between
the owners and players for the
last two decades, ruling in favor
of the players on occasions. But
because this is a new case, it was
randomly assigned and landed in
Nelson's court. Nelson could have
chosen to pass it on to Doty, and
still may, but so far has declined
to do so. She has a history of high-
profile cases as a lawyer, including
serving on the team that won a $7
billion award for the state of Min-
nesota against the tobacco indus-
try in 1988.
Q: When will Nelson issue a rul-
A: It is highly unlikely she will
rule from the bench on Wednes-
day, likely issuing her decision
later. She could side with the play-
ers and issue the injunction, she
could side with the owners and
deny one, or she could decide to
wait until the National Labor Re-
lations Board rules on an unfair
labor practice charge against the
now-dissolved players' union. That
charge alleges the players failed to
negotiate in good faith.
"If the players lose it, and the
judge says that yes the lockout
can continue, then it won't be long
before these multimillion-dollar
players begin to feel a very signifi-
cant impact that they are not be-
ing paid for each game that they
miss," Larson said. "If that starts
to happen, then ... I think there's a
rush to settlement."
Still, any decision Nelson makes
can be appealed by either side.

walks and four strikeouts.
Miles pitched two score-
less innings of relief to
close the game out.
It was a significant win for
the Tigers, who were com-
ing off of a tough 9-6 loss to
South Walton in their last
game, falling thanks to a
sixth inning grand slam by
the Seahawks.
"We knew we needed to
win," Graceville coach Tra-,
vis Miller said, noting his
team's need to avoid an-
other losing streak like the
nine-game skid it suffered
earlier this season.
"We had the losing streak,
then we got hot and won
four in a row, and we didn't
want to go on another los-
ing streak. We wanted to
get back to winning and

For Cottondale, it was a

well we played," the coach
said. "(Starting pitcher Pat-
rick McClain) pitched well
and kept us in the game,
even though we didn't hit
good. This is the kind of
game that we think we can
win, but when you make
five errors and walk 10, you
don't give yourself much of
a chance."
McClain gave up two
earned runs on four hits,
four walks, and five strike-
outs in five innings, while
Ryan Morrissey allowed
three earned runs on one
hit and three walks without
recording an out.
Jake Kernoschak had a
double and a run scored
for the Hornets, while
Trent Jackson had a hit and
a walk.

Following a groundout by
Bigale and a fly out to right
by Bannerman, O'Hearn

Chipola's last loss in
conference came 11-4 to
Northwest Florida State
on March 21, a win that
clinched the 2-1 series win
for the Raiders.
Since then, the Indians
have not lost, reeling off
six straight wins with
consecutive sweeps of

The run has put Chipola
in prime position to make
a run at the Panhandle
title and clinch a berth in
the state tournament.
"Our goal right now is
to win the conference
championship, so I hope
/we can do that," Johnson

said. "Then we'll get in the

try to win that thing. But
we have to get better in all

However, the Indians

is light at the end of the
"Our pitchers scuffled
there for a little while, but
I'll be very surprised if we
don't get this fixed pretty
quickly," he said. "There
were just a couple of me-
chanical things we had to
get in there and work on,
so hopefully we can get
all that fixed. Now, we've
got to create a little more

depth, especially with our
bullpen. That will be a big
key to our success the rest
of the season."
Johnson said Matt
Marsh, Travis Higgs, LJ
Hollins, Austin Southall,
and Dillon Vitale will all be
counted on to step up and
provide support to starters
Johnny Cristi, Luke Bole
and Robby Coles.
"We need our starters to
be more consistent, but
we also have to have some
more depth in the bull-
pen," Johnson said. "We
need to get where we've,
got two or three (relief
pitchers) that you can
depend on every day."
One place the Indians
have found major im-
provement is at the plate,
as the team has raised its
team batting average from
.260 to .311 in just about a
month's time.
"We've been making
some adjustments at the
plate," the coach said.
"We're still not as good in

the execution game with
bunting and hit-and-run
and stuff like that, but
we've brought our average
up 50 points in the last
month, so we are doing
some good things offen-
Johnson said a big
key to his team's recent
turnaround has been the
evolution of his team's ap-
proach to the game more
specifically, its willingness
to accept coaching.
"They didn't always do
that early on," the coach
said. "But here in the last
month or so, they've been
willing to learn some
stuff. When you lose some
games, you get your confi-
dence knocked out of you,
and maybe you're more
willing to listen then. The
guys seem to be enjoy-
ing practice and enjoying
each other. When you do
that, you've got a chance
to improve. But we're still
about 70 percent of where
we need to be."

The Indians will try to
inch ever closer to 100
percent when they resume
play against Gulf Coast on
Friday at Chipola Field.
With just 12 games to go,
Johnson said the start of
the season's home stretch
is always an exciting mo-
ment for hinr as a coach.
"To me, we lose some
games in the non-confer-
ence early on, but it's all
to get you ready for this,"
he said.

"You learn about kids
when they fail a little bit.
You want to watch them
grow, toughen up, and
develop for this time of
the year. This is when they
start giving out trophies,
and that's when I start get-
ting a little more excited.
"We have to start work-
ing harder and getting
prepared to play each
game, but with this group,
it looks like they're excited
about playing as well."

College Basketball

Huskies arrive home

with 3rd title trophy

The Associated Press

STORRS, Conn. Kemba
Walker powered Connecticut
to a third national title and in
return the school put the star
guard's name and number on
the wall of Gampel Pavilion.
It was a surprise moment dur-
ing Tuesday's victory rally be-
fore about 7,500 rabid UConn
fans who came to the arena to
celebrate Monday night's 53-41
win over Butler, and changed
"Kemba Walker," and "One
more year."
The junior playmaker, who
averaged 23.7 points during
the NCAA tournament, cried
and pulled his championship
hat over his eyes as a drape that
covered his banner was pulled
He became the 14th Connect-
icut player to join the "Huskies
of Honor" wall the first to
receive the honor while he was
still in school.
"It's like a dream come true,"
Walker said. "Every kid wants
his jersey or 'his number to be
retired and this is pretty spe-
It's been a special month for
Walker, whose team was picked
to finish 10th in the Big East in
the preseason, but completed
a remarkable 11-0 run through
the postseason that also includ-
ed a conference tournament
"He has had an incredible
season, that no one before has
ever had at UConn," coach Jim
Calhoun said. "When you get in
that category of being called by
one name ... that's pretty spe-
Special enough that any future
Huskies will have to ask Walker
for permission if they want to

wear his No. 15.
That's the type of pull you get
for playing a key role in Con-
necticut's third NCAA men's
basketball championship and
first since 2004.
"You are an inspiration to your
fellow citizens here in Connecti-
cut. You are a great pride to your
university," Gov. Dannel P. Mal-
loy told the team shortly after it
arrived at Bradley Airport. "This
team, just amazing."
The Huskies shook hands with
several dozen fans that lined an
airport fence in a cold rain, then
boarded buses for campus,
where students such as 21-year-
old junior Matt Kuruc had been
partying since Monday night.
"This whole campus is feel-
ing great about this," he said.
"There's nothing else I can do
but celebrate this best win that
we could possibly get."
The UConn Co-op, .the cam-
pus bookstore, had almost sold
out of national championship
shirts and hats by Tuesday af-
ternoon, and had already reor-
dered twice.
Sophomore Bryan McCloskey,
20, of Guilford, was among the
bleary-eyed shoppers looking
for souvenirs.
"There's been classes, but I
skipped my first one because I
was a little bit tired," he said. "I
went to bed at 2:30. Everybody
was totally pumped."
Fans at the rally implored Cal-
houn, who turns 69 next month,
to keep coaching. But Calhoun
was making no promises. He
said he plans to do some golfing
and reflect on the season before
deciding whether to return.
"But I love this university,
and how can you not get goose
bumps when you walk into the
building," he said.

NEA Crossword Puzzle

Annie's Mailbox

Dear Annie: I need to talk to someone.
No one knows about this not even my
husband of 19 years.
I am now 40, and when I was a young
girl, I was molested for a period of time
by a hired man on the farm my dad
owned. He said if I ever told anyone,
he would hurt me, and I believed him.
I never went to my parents. I was also
raped my second year in college by a
fellow classmate. He was convicted, and
my family knows about that, as does my
But for some reason, I couldn't tell any-
one about the earlier molestation. I was
still afraid this man was somehow going
to hurt me.
Lately, I have been having nightmares
about it and don't know why. The guilt,
pain and anger are eating me up inside.
I don't attend church, so I cannot speak

to a pastor. And I have no close friends
nearby who I would feel comfortable
confiding in. Besides, how do you bring
up something like this?
Please help me. Should I tell my par-
ents now? I'm afraid of saying anything to
them or to my husband because it would
be terribly hurtful. Why is this happening

Dear Secret: Sometimes these things
surface when you are under stress, or in
your case, you may have some form of
post-traumatic stress disorder because
you never dealt with the earlier abuse.
Confiding in your husband could provide
much-needed emotional support, but
since this is so difficult for you, we rec-
ommend you contact RAINN (
at 1-800-656-HOPE. Their trained coun-
selors will help you work through this.


You have a big balanced hand, but suddenly
the opponent on your right opens the bid-
ding with one of a suit. How do you show the
strength of your hand?
An overcall of one no-trump shows a good
15 to a poor 18 points about half a point
more than a one-no-trump opening bid. (That
means that you would not overcall with a poor
15, but will make the bid with a "weak" 18. Re-
member that this overcall is dangerous because
your left-hand opponent, the responder, is in
a good position to double for penalty if he has
a decent hand.) If you make a takeout double
and rebid a minimum number of no-trump, it
shows 18-20 points. And a double followed by a
jump in no-trump is 21-22 (if you can bid two
no-trump, but might be stronger if you have to
bid three no-trump).
In this deal, South doubles, then rebids one
no-trump with 19 points. North, with a six-
count and a five-card suit, should have no res-
ervation in bidding three no-trump. Remem-
ber, it pays to be aggressive in these situations
because declarer will know where the missing
high cards are concentrated in the opener's
hand. After West leads the club queen, the play
should be straightforward. South needs to take
four diamond tricks. But if East started with at
least three diamonds and knows to hold up his
ace until the third round of the suit, declarer
will need a dummy entry. So, he must take the
first trick in his hand with the club ace. Then he
drives out the diamond ace and cruises home.

Ivory Coast strongman says he's not stepping down

The Associated Press

ABIDJAN, Ivory Coast Ivory
Coast's strongman leader Lau-
rent Gbagbo holed up in a bunker
inside the presidential residence
Tuesday, defiantly maintaining
he won the election four months
ago even as troops backing the
internationally recognized win-
ner encircled the home.
Gbagbo's comments by tele-
phone to France's LCI television
came as French officials and a
diplomat said he was negotiating
his departure terms after French
and U.N. forces launched a mili-
tary offensive Monday. Demo-
cratically elected leader Alassane
Ouattara has urged his support-
ers to take Gbagbo alive.
* Talks about Gbagbo's depar-
ture terms were ongoing Tues-

day evening directly between
Gbagbo and Ouattara, accord-
ing to a diplomat who spoke on
condition of anonymity because
he was not authorized to speak
France's foreign minister said
Gbagbo would be required to
relinquish power in writing after
a decade as president, and must
formally recognize Ouattara, the
internationally backed winner
of the November election that
plunged the West African nation
into chaos.
But Gbagbo showed no inten-
tion of leaving, declaring in his
interview with French television,
that Ouattara "did not win the
elections" even though he was
declared the victor by the U.N.,
African Union, United States,
former colonial power France

of the principal entrances to Abidjan, Ivory Coast, on Tuesday.

and other world leaders. French channel said the inter-
"I won the election and I am view was conducted by phone
not negotiating my departure," from his residence at 1730 GMT,
Gbagbo said by telephone. The and lasted about 20 minutes.

United Nations and French
forces opened fire with attack
helicopters on Gbagbo's arms
stockpiles and bases on Mon-
day after four months of political
deadlock in the former French
colony in West Africa. Columns
of foot soldiers allied with Ouat-
tara also finally pierced the city
limits of Abidjan.
"One might think that we are
getting to the end of the crisis,"
Hamadoun Toure, spokesman,
for the U.N. mission to Ivory
Coast said by phone. "We spoke
to his close aides, some had al-
ready defected, some are ready
to stop fighting.

Supporters of Haiti's presidential candidate Michel "Sweet Micky" Martelly celebrate outside
Martelly's home. after the announcement of preliminary results for the presidential election
runoff in Port-au-Prince, Haiti on Monday.

Haiti's Martelly knows politics

The Associated Press

- The presidential cam-
paign of musician Michel
"Sweet Micky" Martelly at
first seemed like an after-
thought, overshadowed by
the short-lived run of the
better-known star Wyclef
Jean and dismissed as little
more than a sideshow to
an election that featured
major Haitian political fig-
But Martelly, who has
never held political office,
turned out to be a serious,
skilled and successful can-
didate. He captured nearly
68 percent of the vote, de-
feating opposition leader
and former first lady Mir-
lande Manigat; according
to preliminary election
results released Monday
When initial results of the
flawed first round in No-
vember put him out of the
race, Martelly mobilized
supporters to protest as if
he were a veteran of Haiti's
rough politics, and a new
count got him a spot in the
March 20 runoff. He ran
a disciplined campaign,
deftly depicting himself as
an outsider and neophyte
even though he has long
been active in politics!
Thousands of support-
ers danced and cheered
in the streets after his vic-
tory was announced. They
ran through the streets,
climbed atop cars, and
even fired automatic rifles
in the sky. Carrying posters
of his smiling face and bald
crown, supporters showed
up outside his gated com-
pound in Petionville, a city
